The Final Fantasy 14 Housing Lottery Is Finally Fixed

Final Fantasy XIV’s housing lottery is finally fixed after one month of being broken.  On April 16, an FFXIV maintenance update indicated that the latest lottery cycle for housing in-game was broken, so when checking the placard where winners were to be shown, the placard said there were no winners. This meant nobody could obtain a house. Polygon reports the issue has been fixed as of yesterday, and now, winning lottery numbers will be displayed correctly, and land purchases may be finalized accordingly.  “As I mentioned in our previous update, we will be conducting maintenance to restore lottery results data on Monday, May 16,” FFXIV producer and director Naoki Yoshida writes in a new update. “This maintenance will fix identified errors and properly relay lottery results for affected plots to the appropriate servers.” As a result of this maintenance fix:  Winning lottery numbers will be displayed correctly, and land purchases may be finalized accordingly. Temporary suspensions imposed on plot purchases and relocations will be lifted.  Yoshida says that if you have a winning lottery number, you should finalize your land purchase by Thursday, May 26, as the next lottery cycle will begin that day, at which point, you will lose the ability to claim land you won during the current lottery. The next one will start on May 26 and have a typical five-day entry period and a four-day results period.  If you’re a winning participant who has already received a gil refund due to the recent lottery break, you will still be able to finalize a purchase on a won plot of land. Even if you received a refund and have since found out you won the lottery, you’ll still be treated as a winning lottery player.  “In Patch 6.2, we plan to implement an NPC by which you may voluntarily return the deposit you were accidentally refunded,” Yoshida writes. “As these housing lottery issues have been significant and caused great stress and frustration in many players, we have no intention of performing a data rollback to forcibly rescind any refunded gil. We will make an announcement regarding the voluntary return of housing deposits once the NPC in question is ready to be implemented.  “In closing, I would like to thank you all once again for your patience and understanding this past month, and extend my deepest apologies for the trouble and inconvenience these issues have caused. We will do everything in our power to safely restore your data, fix any remaining issues, and bring you all a fair and functional housing lottery system. Thank you for your continued support.”  For more FFXIV, read our exclusive interview feature with Yoshi-P, and then read Game Informer’s Final Fantasy XIV Endwalker review.

    After receiving multiple big-screen adaptations since its 1925 publishing, F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby is finally making its solution to the tiny screen as Vikings creator Michael Hirst has signed to create a series iteration at A+E Studios and ITV Studios America, in line with the Hollywood Reporter.

    Set in the Roaring Twenties on Long Island, the story of Fitzgerald’s celebrated novel centers around narrator Nick Carraway as he begins creating a friendship with mysterious millionaire Jay Gatsby and learns of his obsession to reunite along with his former lover, Daisy Buchanan. The series adaptation will further explore New York’s Black community and musical subculture through the right time frame, with Columbia University’s William B. Ransford Professor of English and Comparative Literature and African-American studies Farah Jasmine Griffin serving as a consultant on the series, dealing with Hirst and consulting producer Blake Hazard directly, great-granddaughter of Zelda and Scott Fitzgerald, on the miniseries reimagining.

    I appear to have lived with Gatsby the majority of my entire life, reading it first as a schoolboy, later teaching it at Oxford in the 1970s then re-reading it periodically ever since,” Hirst said. “As the critic Lionel Trilling once wrote: ‘The Great Gatsby continues to be as fresh as when it first appeared, it has gained in weight and relevance even. ’ Today, as America seeks to again reinvent itself once, may be the perfect moment to check with new eyes as of this timeless story, to explore its iconic and famous characters through the present day lens of gender, race and sexual orientation. Fitzgerald’s profoundly romantic vision will not prevent him exposing and examining the darker underbelly of the American experience, which explains why the complete story speaks to both tragedy and hope, today and just why it continues to resonate.

    Hirst is mounted on pen the script for the “closed-ended miniseries” and executive produce alongside Groundswell Productions’ Michael London (Sideways), as the co-producers currently are in work shopping the project around to premium cable and streaming outlets. Sources report that A+E have held the rights to the novel for many years, going completely to the tiny screen film starring Paul Rudd as Carraway back, and that they’ve been dealing with Hirst for at the very least 3 years quietly, year before departing with Apple secretly attached last.

    I have long dreamt of a far more diverse, inclusive version of Gatsby that better reflects the America we reside in, one which might allow people to see ourselves in Scott’s wildly romantic text,” Hazard said. “Michael brings a deep reverence for Scott’s work to the project, but additionally a fearlessness about bringing this iconic story alive within an fresh and accessible way. I’m delighted to be always a right area of the project.

    Hirst spent some time working with A+E for pretty much a decade, from 2013 along with his hit historical drama Vikings that served as History Channel’s first scripted series and happens to be developing the limited series The Plague Year for A&E and signed a standard cope with president Barry Jossen. Gatsby has been adapted into film numerous times, like the Warner Baxter-led iteration in 1926, 1949’s Alan Ladd starrer, 1974’s with Robert Redford and Baz Luhrmann’s 2013 effort with Leonardo DiCaprio in the titular role.
